I was extremely restless and full of undefined emotions… I was walking down the hallway in front of the waiting room. I remembered all the advice given to the mother-to-be, all the fearful smiles of the last weeks of pregnancy and the first groans of the early labor.
Hi. I am Cătălin and I’ve been through that roller coaster of emotions when my son was born. What I can tell you is that the beauty of a child’s existence in your life and the education you receive only by having the responsibility to raise it, are clearly superior to these feelings of helplessness and sometimes of dread. But let’s get back to my need for a user manual.
How should I explain it to be easier to understand?… There is not a single, identical handbook applicable to all children, as automobiles do not have an identical user’s manual, even when they belong to the same manufacturer and even less when they are different brands.
Similarly, depending on family, culture, economic or educational status, children are different and some situations require different approaches, different styles… in other words, an important degree of adaptability.
However, despite the fact that each child has specific characteristics, each child has the same basic principles of functioning, both physiological and psycho-emotional. Thus, as the role of any science is to identify the principles and laws we operate in, this discipline also has the role of helping us understand what are the common elements of every child, and how we need to react in the difficult situations that arise in any parent-child relationship.
It is only after we manage to properly understand and treat what is fundamentally identical in the behavior of every child, that we have a chance to identify those particularities that require personalized attitude and behavior.
In fact, that’s exactly what I propose in the series I’ve prepared for you. I invite you on the next few occasions to identify some of the standard behaviors and the solutions you have to help harmoniously develop the miracle you have been entrusted with. For, at the end of the day, this is your responsibility; and Your efforts will be rewarded!
